One of the biggest services we provide here at Pure Clean Waste Solutions is the collection of waste oil and hazardous materials from businesses right across the UK. However, that doesn’t stop up from being concerned about waste material in general, and one of the areas where we are all guilty of being careless is in the home setting, where we throw away items that could be used for other purposes.
Kitchen and garden waste, in particular, can have other uses, and if you decide to compost certain things they will turn into a rich type of soil and you can use this as a fertiliser. That being the case, here’s a list of the items you can compost today that will become a nutrient-enriched soil in the future.
There’s a whole host of kitchen waste which is suitable for composting. Hang fire before you throw the following in the bin, it can definitely be used for compost.
- Orange peel
- Apple cores
- Banana skins
- Tea bags
- Coffee granules
- Vegetable scraps
As well as the kitchen, the garden also has plenty of items to offer the compost heap and they can include unwanted waste products such as:
- Rotting leaves
- Brambles and privet trimmings
- Grass cuttings
- Dying flowers
- Fauna and flora in its final flourishes
Of course, this is just a small list of the items you can add to a new compost heap and if you are seriously into recycling and want to reduce the amount of waste your home produces, this is the ideal way to make use of unwanted goods that would normally be thrown into the bin.
And the best bit about creating your own compost heap is you will produce lots of lovely soil which you can use as a fertiliser for your flower beds.
